Innovation Road map In next 6 months – Setting executive committee to implement decisions taken by the SInC – State Innovation portal – State Innovation Policy – SInC would play the role as “advice-facilitate-monitor development” in public and pvt sector. – Set up sectoral Innovation Councils – District Innovation Councils – Build digital database of innovations across sectors and at Grassroot – Infact NIF (National Innovation Foundation) has made database for Maharashtra but we would scale up those and take across the state – So we are focusing on both formal as well as informal sectors for building Innovation database. – Large number of Innovations have happened in govt sectors but are not well documented and disseminated. The Innovation database would help us to take advantage of such Innovations on state wide. – We are devising unique customized Innovation Index to assess current status of Innovation the state.
Funding Innovation Policy would be to tap untapped resources innovatively Though the State would make adequate provision whatever is required but would leverage more on existing resources, suitable policies, CSR support, fiscal incentives, etc. Create State level risk capital network SInC would aggressively create support mechanism to covert maximum no. of technology trained youth into technopreneurs: more job creators than job seekers. Establishment of Business Incubators in potential universities, agriculture universities, potential affiliated institutions, and organically link them with industries and R&D institutions. Establishment of City Business incubation centers in all major cities as generic facility for city youth
Social Entrepreneurship to create inclusive societies Set up to begin with one rural business incubator in every district which could be expanded to Tehsil level. Basically to take grass-root technologies to market that would improve quality of life of the people that are at the bottom of economic pyramid. Hold series of stakeholder meetings to understand how innovation can play role in resolving issues like affordable health, improve hygiene and sanitation, efficient smoke free cooking energy, increase in agri productivity, food processing, better nutrition at affordable cost, efficient use of biomass and affordable and quality of education in rural areas, etc.
